The Dilemma: In this course, you will get to see the fascinating ways that civil law and Jewish law intersect. 

You will personally experience the nature of the deliberations that stand behind a ruling of a Bet Din, a Rabbinic court of Jewish law, and gain insight while delving into the Torah’s ethical and legal teachings on interesting and tricky cases.

The situations examined in this course werereal, modern, and relevant. From self-driving cars, theft, and drones to virtual reality games like Pokemon GO, the classes investigate and challenge commonly perspectives on privacy, liability, and a range of moral and ethical situations that we encounter on a regular basis in 2017.
